Maine naturalist and wild food expert Tom Seymour returns to lead a spring edible plant workshop and walk on Saturday, April 29 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
This class will introduce beginning foragers to a variety of edible spring plants. Guests will learn how to identify, when to forage, how to limit environmental impact, and how to cook and prepare wild plant foods. After an indoor presentation, the group will head outside to search the Merryspring trails for wild spring edibles.
This is an outdoor program. Guests are advised to wear weather-appropriate clothing, sturdy shoes, and to be prepared to walk on uneven terrain.
Tom Seymour is a writer and naturalist based in Waldo. He is the author of multiple books including “Wild Plants of Maine- A Useful Guide”, “Forager’s Notebook”, “Foraging New England”, and many Falcon Guides on subjects diverse as hiking, birding, and fishing in Maine.
Space is limited for this event, so guests must pre-register. The cost is $10, with a discounted rate of $5 for Merryspring members. Please sign up by contacting us at 236-2239 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
